What people are saying about NOMO

THE BOSTON GLOBE

Whatever you call their music, it's got an infectious groove the makes it impossible to keep your hips from swaying.

JAZZ TIMES

NOMO mixes various strains of great black music into a single blazing sun of sound, and right from the distorted sounds of the amplified kalimba that open the CD, you know NOMO is going to hit you with a hip-swiveling blast of righteous Afro-funk.

THE WASHINGTON POST

Elliot Bergman's Nomo is one of the tightest, swingingest Afrobeat world-jazz bands on the planet.

DETROIT FREE PRESS

NOMO takes a giant step forward with its sophmore release, which will fill dancefloors wherever it's spun.

MAGNET

It’s party music of the first order, locking into a groove so deep you can practically feel the sweat.

FADER

When “Better Than That†came in with what sounded like a conga and a Coke bottle percussion duet I sat up on the futon, then I got smoked by both the ensuing free jazz saxophone solo and the mbira passage. I stayed with the music, all the way though to “The Seams†and “La La Laâ€â€”the album’s two brief final songs that masterfully explore both the band’s astro potential and their sure-footed soul foundations.

XLR8R

Subtly shifting time signatures and grooves, and outfitted with more than capable soloists, Nomo sounds fresh in an otherwise saturated market.

URB

Elliot Bergman leads these 17 Detroit musicians bangin’ blowin’ and honkin’ through some funk and afrobeat hot enough to melt a Midwest blizzard.
